Adelina (Casas) Gutierrez, 79, of George West, Texas, passed away peacefully Thursday, May 18, 2023. She is now free from pain and has been reunited at the gates of Heaven with her beloved Lord and Savior as well as her parents, Andres and Hilaria (Gonzales) Casas.
Adelina was born Nov. 9, 1943 in Beeville. She married the love of her life, Daniel Gutierrez, on April 1, 1960 in George West where they made their home and raised their family. One could say the couple started a tradition in the Gutierrez family as several others also wed on same date as theirs.
Adelina dedicated her life to God and her Baptist faith and was a strong, loving, Christian woman who loved nothing more than spending time with her family. She believed in the power of prayer both in giving and receiving.
As a woman of many talents and interests, Adelina was a fabulous dancer and enjoyed quilting and gardening. She would often tell her children to gift her with plants and rose bushes now instead of later so she could enjoy them. She also took daily walks which helped keep her happy and healthy. In addition, she was very crafty and creative.
No matter the situation, Adelina always treated people with dignity and respect and made them feel wanted and loved.
Her favorite holiday, Thanksgiving, would bring family and extended family members together to enjoy an amazing meal and fellowship in her home.
Adelina was preceded in death by her parents, Andres and Hilaria Casas; brothers, Ramon Casas, Juan Casas, Adan Casas and Margarito Casas; sisters, Guadalupe Zuniga and Andrea Guerrero; and her aunt, Angelita Gonzalez.
